ePub Ý The Novice Bride ï Carol Townend

Es to protect her family Suspicions and betrayal are rife yet their convenient marriage offers Cecily much than comfort in her knight's arms The writing was pretty good and the concept was uniue but I swear to god if I had to read one sentence about how the heroine's life in the convent made her unused to men I might just scream She was a novice in a convent full of women for several years; we get it thanks You belabored that point about a hundred times too manyI just feel that the author had an infinite field of possibility and she didn't really take advantage of it The climax was pretty blah really the bad guy gave in WAY too easily and uickly and there was very little plot development But for a light mindless distraction from everyday life this wasn't so bad I don't know that I'd highly recommend it but I didn't hate it either
